Clinical Interests:

Dr. Rohant is a cardiologist whose training in advanced heart disease and heart failure, cardiac imaging and procedures, and geriatric medicine has prepared him to provide excellent individualized care to his patients. He specializes in diagnosing and delivering personalized care for patients who have congestive heart failure, as well as those who have undergone heart transplants or left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) - implanted mechanical pumps used in end-stage heart failure to help circulate blood from the heart to the rest of the body. In addition, he also treats patients with pulmonary hypertension and right-sided heart failure and performs procedures in the cardiac catherization lab to better assess patients and to implant remote monitoring devices such as pulmonary artery pressure monitors. Dr. Rohant also has a specialized focus on treating elderly patients with a multitude of cardiac conditions.

Research Interests: 

The goal of Dr. Rohant’s research lies within the realms of geriatric cardiology, heart failure, and remote monitoring devices. He hopes to better understand cardiovascular disease processes and mechanisms within the older adult population and those patients with typical geriatric syndromes such as frailty, sarcopenia, delirium, dementia, and polypharmacy. With his research interests, he hopes to ultimately improve the quality of life for older patients living with cardiac disease.
